The location is decent and the price isn't bad. Unfortunately, you can hear everything coming from other rooms and the hallways as if your door is open.
Whether it's loud conversations across the hall, the maintenance crew pushing a squeaky cart at 2AM, or loud keys jingling at 4AM, you'll hear everything. I don't want to wake up because the family down the hall is removing their bags from their room at 7AM. I haven't slept this poorly in a hotel before.
I wouldn't come back unless all other budget options are fully booked.

Yes, it says that it's a 2 star hotel. But i would actually give it a 3 1/2.
As far as room size you get what you pay for. But the aircon works well. The bathroom is also a shower, but they still do an amazing job of keeping everything clean.
They have a variety of TV channels from English, Malaysian, to Mandarin speaking programs.
It is in a good location, located in the middle between the green and purple MRT line.
They offer free water and wifi.
Their bedsheets do slip around in the night, so if you do stay there you might want to request an additional sheet throughout the night just in case.

As far as the staff goes, they were extremely helpful. They took their time to print out maps for me to help me get around the city, and they sent my postcards as well. They were the utmost friendly, and always willing to answer questions and call a cab.


I know some of the previous reviews may say the staff are not helpful but those must be outdated based on the customer service i experienced during my stay,

Tiny room, but clean and with nice view. Compared to other places we looked at in Singapore we considered it a pretty good deal. We stayed there while visiting my sister on the way to Indonesia and on the way back. Great for a short stay.

What an experience - a tiny hotel room with no window! Even prison is nicer - probably also cleaner... We booked it bc it was rather centrally located and it was one of the cheaper hotels. Would hardly recommend it again - you might as well spend a little more and acutally get sth for your money. Staff was ok, hotel provided internet (which they claim costs USD 10 per day but is in hotel price included)... not much more to add. If you book here - then 99% u get a room with no window.

Disgusting is the only word to describe this place . Backpacking so I don't expect much but this place I'd filthy and horrible.

Dozens of hairs all over the room and bedding . Bugs all over the walls, no windows and really don't waste your time. Walls are so thin I didn't sleep a wink !!! £50 a night to. Rip off

HORRIBLE
